I'm sure their communities, families and neighbors are proud of them.

What a joke. If it was my family that they were terriorizing, I would track them down and handle the matter myself.

as a former resident of ely I think these guys got off really lite! I wish the judge would have thrown the book at them more. Hopefully the other two guys will get stiffer penalties.

Editor? If they are sentenced, they aren't really "suspects" anymore are they?

Last year a Native American man 22 y.o. was sentenced to 11 months in jail with a felony conviction for discharging a firearm in St. Louis County. Frankly, I do not remember the full background but remember a few people commenting on how light the sentence was.

Because of these guys sentence reductions, they probably will be allowed to own guns in the future.

Understand your reaction but going after someone with a gun, late at night and being unarmed yourself is not a good ideal.

It was a plea bargain to go after Lackner. He'll get whats coming.

Age may have been a factor. The fellow of 37 and, as yet, unsentenced may windup shafted as the ringleader. As for the Native American mentioned in other comments, you cannot compare the results in different legal situations--and I am a Native American.
